The Daily Bell

Global watchdogs rattled by lack of fear in the markets ... A storm alert ... from Simon Derrick at the Bank of New York Mellon. He cites three warnings from leading central bankers, all alarmed by the remarkable disregard for risk in the equity, credit, and currency markets. The Bank of England's Deputy Governor Charles Bean says the lack of volatility is "eerily reminiscent" of the run up to the financial crisis in 2007-2008. Investors are turning a blind eye to a large fact: that central banks are intent on extricating themselves from QE and emergency policies come what may, and this is going to be a painful experience. – UK Telegraph

Dominant Social Theme: Danger! The markets have gone too high ...

Free-Market Analysis: In keeping with one of our newer dominant social themes, we present the above excerpt on the possibility of a near-term stock market crash and how investors seem to be ignoring it. We call this meme the "Wall Street Party."

Now ,why would there be a party during the longest postwar economic downturn? Maybe because what is obvious to us is obvious to many in the market or circling around it: Equity markets, especially, have gone from being structured casinos to carefully controlled investment facilities.

MH 370 - US Navy Official: We Looked For MH370 In The Wrong Area - By RT (2/6/14) PDF Print E-mail

The four pings at the center of the search for the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 were not from the jet’s black boxes, a senior US Navy official said on Wednesday. The sounds were likely from another man-made source unrelated to the missing plane.

Michael Dean, the Navy's deputy director of ocean engineering, told CNN that most of the countries involved in the hunt for MH370 now agree the four acoustic pings did not come from the missing plane’s onboard data or cockpit voice recorders. If they had, he said, searchers would have found the equipment known as the black boxes.

"Our best theory at this point is that (the pings were) likely some sound produced by the ship ... or within the electronics of the Towed Pinger Locator," Dean said to CNN. "Always your fear any time you put electronic equipment in the water is that if any water gets in and grounds or shorts something out, that you could start producing sound.”


The Boeing 777-200 aircraft went missing on March 8 during a flight from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Beijing, China. The plane carrying 239 people disappeared from radars over Vietnamese airspace, seemingly vanishing into thin air. The Australian naval vessel Ocean Shield, using a Towed Pinger Locator, reported detecting four separate sets of ping signals in the southern Indian Ocean in early April, leading to an international coalition to focus the search for MH370 on a 329-square-mile area about 1,000 miles off the coast of Australia.

White House Kidstuff At Work: Big Oil Drives Huge Russian Energy Deals Right Thru Siberian-Scale Loophole - By David Stockman (2/6/14) PDF Print E-mail

Contra Corner

That’s right, the children in the Obama west wing slapped tough sanctions on one of Russia’s major oligarchs, Igor Sechin, who is head of Rosneft, which is the nation’s largest oil company. The man was sternly warned not to come to the US or he would find his passport seized at the INS window. More importantly, he was admonished not to bring any of his money here, either, or that would be seized, too.

But none of these fearsome sanction apply to Rosneft per se—an energy giant which is currently producing at an annual rate of nearly 2 billion barrels per year oil equivalent and booking revenues in excess of $150 billion annually. So what happened is that Mohamed went to the mountain—that is, ExxonMobil, BP, Royale Dutch Shell, Total S.A. and many more journeyed to Moscow within the last week to sign giant energy deals in just exactly the areas that involve cutting edge technology. Namely, LNG plants to get landlocked Siberian gas into world commerce and shale oil technology to help unlock another latent energy resource.

The following story provides chapter and verse on these deals, but the larger point needs no elaboration. What in the world do these children think they are doing with their state department wet noodles?  This whole phony “sanctions” maneuver is so ludicrous as to starkly remind us that the the real danger to America’s peace and prosperity is not Vladimir Putin, but the amateurs and the statist apparatchik’s which run our own government.
